    prem,
    Since you passed your test then you must be at least academically proficient in what you were taught. How did they tell you to start a project?

    Yes, I have been trained. However, I have done all my projects in manufacturing, related to some machines & processes. I do not have any experience related to projects related to purchase.

    Alka Tiwar,
    Why do you think you need an example? Why can’t you take what you were taught and apply it? So what if your projects were in manufacturing. Do you think that a problem statement, project charter, process map, etc changes because you are going to purchasing?
    Either go do what you were taught to do or go back to your instructors and tell them what they teach is inadequate.
    Everybody loves to quote Deming when it serves them. He listed the search for examples as an obstacle to improvement. Why do you think you need an example for a security blanket?
    Just my opinion.

    Dear Mike,
                    Can ‘Developing new component at an existing vendor or new vendor be a gb project’?

    Yes it can be. There is no global standard which
    differentiates a GB and BB project. Companies may set
    different parameters or standards for themselves.In some companies, the differentiation is due to the
    revenue that can be generated from this or the scope
    of the project etc.In your case, it has to be a project involving DMADV
    methodology.

    Alka Tiwari,Actually it sounds like a good project. As far as what it should be, since none of us have any details to what the project actually is, can be difficult to tell. Statrt you project following the steps are they were taught to you DMAIC. If you get stuck you can always come back to the forum and ask questions.You have a wonderful opportunity in front of you. Don’t what you can learn from it by trying to follow what someone else did. The simplest way to think outside the box is to never crawl inside the box. The very instant you read someone elses project you immediately start you close down possibilities. Is it more difficult. Of course but being original is always difficult. Make the most of the gift you have been given.Just my opinion.

    Dear Mike,
     Thank you for your reply and for motivating me. Have you undergone the Black belt certification course? If yes which one?Can you tell me which one is the best and how to prepare for it? My current projects did not require much use of stastical tools.
     
    Thanks & regards,
    Alka
